box lamp

2014

The idea behind the box lamp was to create a simple light fixture out of a single piece of 1/16" sheet steel. Sitting on end, the lamp can illuminate a wall, or with one pancake head screw can be mounted to the wall and used as a bedside reading lamp.

dining table

2009

Designed as a prototype for the Portland furniture show 'FIX' in 2009. Conceived as a catch all table with a solid doug fir top and custom fabricated 1/8" plate steel legs. The leaves are stored in the legs via magnets while not in use. When extra room for guests or work is needed, the leaves attach at either end and are supported by steel bar stock that extends from a routed channel in the table top.
